The European Day of Languages, launched in 2001, promotes linguistic diversity as a tool of greater intercultural understanding. Being aware of the invaluable significance that Languages have in a globally interacting world, and welcoming UNESCO’s declaration of 2008 as International Year of Languages, we gathered to celebrate a Festival of Languages. Kicked off with a massive Language Mela on October 20, the celebration of languages continues with 8 Language Days, where single European Languages are presented. After the French, Croatian, Esperanto and German Language Days, this month a 2 day long seminar on Russian continues our language celebration.

Come and celebrate the unity in diversity!
